Free radical control.

BlocBuilder technology is based on novel and patented nitroxide-based compounds capable of controlling free radical polymerization. BlocBuilder combines a nitroxide-based reaction controller and a free radical initiator in one molecule. Results to date are said to show that BlocBuilder initiator/controller is suitable for a wide variety of monomers, including acrylates. In most cases, BlocBuilder technology is said to be compatible with existing polymerization reactors and processes, so that capital investment is minimized. BlocBuilder technology is said to provide notable benefits in a range of applications, including paints and coatings (resins and additives), impact modification, electronics, lubricant additives, adhesives and more.
